Abraxas Ensemble was formed in 1999 as a string quartet by 4 graduates from the Royal College of Music and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. Since their inception, the ensemble has specialised in performing well-known classical works entirely from memory. The group can also expand (up to 16 players) or contract (to 3 players).
The ensemble performs regularly at many high-profile annual events, such as the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and the Hampton Court Flower Show. They also recently provided the musical entertainment for The Secret Brunch, a highly exclusive event held at the Merchant Taylor's Hall on Threadneedle Street in the City of London
